President Bush has said many dumb things in defense of his Iraq policy. Citing the Vietnam War as a model is his most ludicrous.

As voters expressed their disgust, this election signaled a repudiation of the corrupt Bush regime, a clear antiwar victory and the collapse of the conservative order.

Bush insisted that Saddam Hussein's trial be held in Iraq so that an international tribunal would never expose America's history of support for the tyrant.

The Iraq Study Group report comes too late for the 600,000 people who died in carnage that is likely to worsen. It won't satisfy the antiwar movement because it sets no timetable for withdrawal. But it does mark the beginning of the end of America's criminal war of aggression.

Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling would have remained small time crooks were it not for the energy industry deregulation measures they effectively purchased from Bush I and II.

"Some expert on CNN said, 'A stitch in time saves nine.' And I thought, Doesn't anyone speak clearly anymore? Nine what?"

If George W. Bush took the latest National Intelligence Estimate seriously, he would end the ineffectual "war on terror" model and treat terrorism as a pathology to be clinically and relentlessly excised.

The Decider takes on that bothersome Constitution and that meddling
Congress.

President Bush's address to the UN General Assembly was less
disdainful than earlier speeches, but it shined a light on the President's willful blindness to the complexity of the problems facing the Mideast and the world.
